Hi! First post here. I have been working on a DIY Esk8 design for quite a while now, and am about to buy the first parts for a prototype: the wheels.
The direction I am aiming for is a 90 cm (3 foot) board with large wheels (150-200 mm or 6-8 inch). This is mainly due to the city I am living in having a lot of uneven brick streets. I had my eyes on pneumatic wheels (6 inch or 8 inch), but also came across these:
They are 200mm or 8 inch solid wheels, with polyurethane of hardness 75 A. They are originally meant for scooters.
With my lack of experience, I cannot decide between the two, so maybe some of you can help me making a decision. I plan on riding on paved roads (although with some holes/kinks in them) and very light offroad.
Would these quite sick looking wheels be any good for that, or should I stick with pneumatic wheels?
